two areas well within reach of rocket fire from gaza. hamas, the militant gaza government, has basically spread out some of their leaflets to the people in gaza telling them the rocket attacks were in retaliation for the killing of two of its members of its military wing from air strikes by israel. and it's an interesting point made because usually hamas does not claim responsibility. they haven't been doing that. they sort of taken a backseat since the 2008 military action by israel. and so this seems to be some sort of confidence that we're seeing from hamas. the reasons for it may be many, one particular reason might be that this week on tuesday the emir of qatar made a visit to gaza and the first arab lead tore go into gaza since hamas took over in 2007. now, in retaliation for all of these rocket attacks, israel has had more air strikes and tank fire total of four militants have been killed in gaza due to air strikes. and eight palestinians injured, wolf. >> sara, i guess the fear is that this could escalate into something a lot more serious indeed all-out war between hama

the hamas and the front will be pushing through. it is still possible the front could make it to the east coast and take sandy away. the more likely scenario is that they will merge. by the time of the storm gets up to us, it may be losing is tropical characteristics but will still be a powerful area of low pressure. this is the most likely scenario, going for predictor the hamas and turning toward bermuda, before turning back toward the mid-atlantic. some of these are off on their own, but most are clustered in this track that brings the right back into the mid atlantic. that would mostly be happening sunday night into monday. it carries it up for the great lakes. behind the storm there will be some of that cold air coming in that is up in the northern rockies and northern plains right now. that will arrive mostly on tuesday. tomorrow is another mild day. waves that 1 foot or less. if you are heading out to the western maryland mountains for fraud or the weekend, decent weather out there and mostly partly cloudy skies and 69. showers on saturday, sunday is much colder. on the eastern sho

governance. the gaza strip is under the control of hamas today and even in the west bank, hamas still has a very, very serious person despite numerous efforts, which have been carried out to subdue them. so as palestinians are concerned, they are straight down the middle both politically and geographically in here again the authority of ramallah does not control what is happening in gaza strip. these are situations, which we have to take into account when they look at the overall picture, which presents to us in the middle east. the third point i'd like to make is this in this region we have a clearer upsurge of religion as a major power and a major factor in the governance of countries. secularism in the middle east. for a very long time, secularism was succeeding. add that to recall for instance the famous party, the baath party, which was a secularist party, which governs serious and govern iraq for quite some time and to a large extent, hosni mubarak and was not a government, which was religiously motivated and the way it's carried out its business in daily affairs. it's a major effec

in 2007 when hamas took control of gaza. hamas is considered a terrorist organization by israel and the united states. they are dealing with hundreds of rockets each year, coming out of gaza into israel's territory. and they say this is simply to keep more weapons from entering into gaza. the people in hamas included and those who were in gaza and working in gaza, u.n. agencies say look, there is a humanitarian crisis going on here. we've got a million-plus people in a very small area who are all in need of things such as educational supplies and medical supplies. the israelis do not believe there is a humanitarian crisis because they say they let in lots and lots of containers filled with all sorts of things into gaza from the ground and they say they even offered that option to those who are on this particular boat, but they refused saying this saul about the blockade and that the blockade should be stopped. >> appreciate the update. thank you. >>> and we want to let you know that we are awaiting the arrival of paul ryan. he's going to be campaigning in pennsylvania. we'll tak

on its own people. bulldozers demolishing buildings in hama. we're also told they have torn down 120 buildings so far. now, this area is once home to about 30,000 mostly poor folks. also the center of opposition activity in the city. now, forces are going door to door essentially telling people to evacuate before the demolition begins. thousands more syrians are now displaced. >>> tense fighting also being reported in syria's main cities, aleppo and damascus. let's go to neighboring lebanon. mohammed, first of all, you look at these pictures. i mean, we see the demolition is taking place. displacement. it really does remind you of what happened 30 years ago when you had syrian president bashar al assad's father brutally suppressing a revolt in that very same city. >> reporter: well, that's right, suzanne. that's what we've heard from residents in hama that are being affected by this. the massacre that happened here 30 years ago is still very much fresh in the minds of residents in hama, and they are concerned that what's happening now might be a precursor it a repeat of that. now, in
